Planet Organic is expanding its reach across London with a new delivery service.
The UK’s largest fully certified organic supermarket has teamed up with independent store delivery service Hubbub to deliver products within one-hour timeslots to postcodes across London.
The move comes ahead of the UK launch of Amazon’s one-hour online groceries business, Amazon Fresh, anticipated later this month, and means that Planet Organic’s new London express delivery service will give the supermarket first-mover advantage.
Renée Elliott, founder of Planet Organic, commented: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Hubbub.co.uk, a like-minded brand, which shares our quality and ethical principles. A natural partnership, it will transform the experience for our customers.”
To offset the carbon footprint generated from the anticipated increase in demand for deliveries, for each parcel delivered, Planet Organic will make a donation to the Woodland Trust.
Peter Marsh, CEO of Planet Organic, added: “As a pioneer in the market, not only for delicious and healthy organic food but also free from dietary needs, Planet Organic has long filled a gap not served by supermarkets. Through our partnership with Hubbub, our home delivery service in London is now also second to none.”
Marisa Leaf, founder and co-CEO of Hubbub.co.uk, continued: “I’ve always admired Planet Organic’s innovative sourcing of the best organic food, but they are also driving innovation in digestive health and supplements. Now I’m excited about what we can achieve together.”
